Thanks for the videos John.
I'm sure I'm biased, but that was awesome to watch.

Just knowing its been pumping snow like that for over 30 years now, all on the original hardware.

Nice snow. And what Del said... that thing purrs like a kitten. A very hungry snow kitten. Excellent.

Thanks for the vids.

I love that whirring sound the impeller makes. Most noticeable when the camera is out in front. Mine does this also.

I noticed a couple quick tugs on the hydraulic lever. Does your bucket lift slowly bleed down? Mine does. I wanted to open up the selector valve and see what it had for seals, but I chickened out. Perhaps they are just o-rings. I'm feeling braver now and will open it up come spring.

Holy Cow! You are beginning to create a unicorn ranch up there, with these rare cats!

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

It's not fair. I don't even have one and you're sitting on two !!

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
